We rest A dream has power to…

“We rest. A dream has power to poison sleep;
We rise. One wandering thought pollutes the day;
We feel, conceive or reason, laugh or weep;
Embrace fond woe, or cast our cares away:

It is the same! For, be it joy or sorrow,
The path of its departure still is free:
Man’s yesterday may ne’er be like his morrow;
Nought may endure but Mutability.”

Eight lines from the poem “Mutability” are quoted in Frankenstein

Victim mindset

The victim mindset dilutes the human potential.

By not accepting personal responsibility for our circumstances, we greatly reduce our power to change them.
